There's a Skunk in My Bunk Helping Children Learn Tolerance by Joseph T. McCann

When a young boy finds a shivering skunk snuggled in his bunk bed on a cold autumn night, he is horrified and orders the animal out of his house. After all, skunks are nasty, smelly creatures, right? Frightened, the skunk finds the courage to stand his ground, defending himself and others like him. As these two strangers come to know each other, the boy learns that he must think for himself and not prejudge others. This appealingly illustrated, humorous tale with its important message of tolerance for others identifies -- and discourages -- stereotypic thinking in children.
